Pros: "Fast/ efficient"
Cons: "The little plane is always brutal. I'm not a small guy and sat next to an offensive lineman. It was tight for sure!"

Pros: "The crew was very kind."
Cons: "Th plain boarding took much longer, we flew in circles above JFK, waited for a gate for us, then waited for all passengers with connecting flights to get off because we were late and that resulted in a VERY long process for the rest of us. The descent into the airport was also not the smoothest, but it was a smaller plane."

Pros: "Fast!"

Cons: "Flight delayed 2 hours. Wifi/entertainment wouldn't connect."

Pros: "The seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Why does Delta sell earphones?"

Pros: "On time departure and smooth landing"
Cons: "More leg room. Stop nickel and dining passengers to appease investors. Delta is an evil corporation"

Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "The WiFi didn’t work well"

Pros: "Airport accessibility"
Cons: "Not getting delayed for 20 minutes on the tarmac"

Pros: "Fast and efficient"

Pros: "All aspects"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The seats were awful .how many can squeeze in. .horrible"
Cons: "Room to breathe, move a little"

Pros: "the people were Awesome!!flight crew were very personable and easy to get along with, as well as get in touch with."
Cons: "where to start, I am not a huge overweight person. I have 26-28" shoulders and longer legs then most 5'-10" people have. That said, you should not be required to hold your arm out and hold the seat back in front of you so that you are not elbowing or shouldering the people beside you. sitting sideways on a seat I paid extra for doesn't seem like a great flight to me."

Pros: "Early boarding for Seniors"
Cons: "Limited food"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The FA’s and pilot"
Cons: "I love the flight becayse it was smooth sailing and delta is always choice."

Pros: "Excellent flight crew, flight had decent leg room. Loved the inflight entertainment. Clean plane, boarding was easy."

Pros: "very nice and willing stewardesses"
Cons: "tragic little place for legs, lack of space"

Pros: "Flight attendants we were very nice and efficient. Flight was short"

Pros: "Traveling with a 4 year old isn’t always easy. Delta’s flight attendants and the captains controlling the plane were excellent! Safe flight. And the entertainment that is provided for the customers is fun and relaxing. Makes a 4.5 hour flight go by quick. Thank you delta, I will be flying with you in the future"

Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "The bulkhead sears had no electrical outlet"

Pros: "The crew were so polite and happy!"
Cons: "Those seats! UGH!"

Pros: "Everything from the check-in to the landing was great. We were well informed about what was going on with out luggage (we were on a regional flight) and the assortment of free snacks were superb! I guess I'll be a returning customer"
Cons: "I was expecting some form of entertainment (radio, overhead monitor, etc) on the CRJ700. But it really don't take away from the experience since T-Mobile partnered with the Wi-Fi service and I received a free hour of Wi-Fi!"

Pros: "Flight was comfortable. Short, sweet, and landed before I knew it. Boarding was a smooth process."
Cons: "The flight crew and service on the plane was fine. My biggest complaint was at the baggage drop off at the airport, where there was quite a long line without any crew members assisting us. A five to ten minute wait is fine, but a fifteen minute wait, with only three crew members compared to the other airlines? By the time I dropped off my baggage, the other airlines were finished with their customers, and there was still quite a line behind me."

Pros: "Barcelona is a busy place. Don't forget your adapter plugs - like I did."

Pros: "I'm very satisfied."
Cons: "No comemt"

Pros: "Received sky boarding despite having a seat near the front. I like the smaller plane because there was plenty more leg room where I was (9c). A variety of free snacks were offered along with starbucks coffee, score! I wish I'd brought my ipad to take advantage of the free wi-fi and movies in-flight. Take-off & landing were very smooth despite a delay upon take-off. Made my connecting flight with time to buy lunch."

Pros: "Service was great, flight was excellent"
Cons: "Delay"

Pros: "Not the wor st comfort,"
Cons: "Cannot even request seats before booarding, as they try to get us to pay more. The anxiety over separate seating for couples is not worth it."

Cons: "Delays and ground chaos nearly caused us to miss our international connection. Gate staff unable to provide assistance with booking on connecting partner airline. Gate staff unaware of new terminal 3 to TBIT airside shuttle nearly directed us to leave domestic and requeue for international security. Will like skip Delta connectors to long haul international flights and just fly direct from SFO."

Pros: "Reassuring that the airport desk staff were keeping an eye on my connection from LAX to Columbus. Turned out it was too tight of a squeeze and I missed the connecting airplane's door closing by a few minutes, despite having RUN through LAX to get there."
Cons: "I am disappointed by the lack of communication among Delta staff when we arrived at LAX. Our turn-around was late coming into SMF, thus late leaving. It would have been very helpful if the gate staff at LAX had advised me to not bother to try to make my connection, or called the next gate to tell them we were running over there. RUNNING. Or at least done something to act like they cared. I am disappointed by the lack of initiative. I understand flights cannot wait, and I would have greatly appreciated being saved the trouble of running to a different terminal and instead taking that time to change my travel plans. They may see travelers struggling like this daily, but to each traveler, a hiccup in travel plans trip is stressful and urgent. I ask Delta staff to please consider that when they come to work. Thank you."

Pros: "Met my cousins from Portland in SLC and killed layover time"

Pros: "The seats were comfortable, service was good, movie/entertainment selection great. Logistics for flight were awesome, there was no long layover."
Cons: "The extra fee for check-in baggage."

Pros: "Don't know yet. We're still waiting to leave."
Cons: "That you're asking how it was before I left."

Pros: "Pilot has very smooth landing. Crew were nice"

Cons: "Aeromexico has terrible customer services from check in to over the phone. There are no other options and I can't believe Delta works w/ them. Just no words to describe the horrible experience all around."

Cons: "in Amsterdam any DELTA crew helm us, only KLM"

Cons: "Flight was delayed. Delta doesn't challenge anyone who attempts to pre-board. It's become somewhat of a joke. The plane was hot (717) with very poor ventilation. Was in 1st class and didn't get beverage service after boarding. Then, the plane sat on a remote taxiway another 30 minutes before takeoff, fully loaded, no A/C, and still no beverage service. Truly miserable hot and sweaty flight."

Pros: "Availability of First Class service was the only saving grace."
Cons: "Delays longer than the scheduled flight time. Entertainment options are limited in the time of such a short flight. Long distance between gates when you have been forced into a hurry by delays."

Pros: "Great food and service. Great entertainment. Really comfortable flight overall."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and it wasn't communicated very well."

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Tiny seats"

Pros: "We were late leaving and missed our very tight connection at JFK. When we went to an agent we found we had been already rebooked on another flight through Detroit arriving 2.5 hours later than original. Our luggage was also rerouted to follow our flights and was there in Phoenix!"
Cons: "45 minutes is too tight a connection in JFK when you have to change terminals even if the flight were on time!"

Pros: ".....delta in Washington was great changed my flight so I didn't have delay !!!!!! Will always use"

Pros: "Crew was nice and professional. Very efficient in their tasks"
Cons: "The music over the intercom was more than just loud it was deafening. When I asked for it to be lowered the flight attendant indicated they had just turned it down. It still was too loud. The GoGo internet, which I pay for, did not work for most of the flight."

Pros: "I definitely like the variety of entertainment that was given throughout the flight."
Cons: "The flight attendant was so rude to others including myself. I'm not one to be to needy but when i was about to ask the lady if I can switch seats to the fair back where there was two empty seats she gladly let the other person but not me. She said no that if I wanted to sit back I needed to set with the other person. Our flight was from NYC to PR 5hour long and in between those hours she let a couple sit together on the other empty rows while I was feeling supper sick. Other passengers notice and had told me that they felt sorry for me. I was Embarressed. I was debating on venting on Twitter just yet and also on this review because what difference does it make. What matters the most is that we all got to our destination safely."

Pros: "the chick who worked the counter for the preboard flight counter was really REALLY nice"
Cons: "everyone on my flight was ugly"

Pros: "N/a"
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Plane was a bit old"

Pros: "Smooth as butter. Slept the whole way."
Cons: "Nothing could have improved it."

Cons: "After the flight was diverted due to Weather conditions I missed my connecting flight and American Airlines did a terrible job handling the changes and assisting their customers at DFW airport."

Pros: "Everything was easy"

Pros: "It was fine the next leg of the trip was cancelled"

Pros: "Crew was amazing, seating too crowded"
Cons: "Consider removing seats to add more space per seat"

Pros: "That I was FINALLY able to get to my destination after a THREE AND HALF HOUR DELAY. Mechanical malfunctions, Get crew unable to find the pilots once the mechanical malfunction was corrected, sitting on the plane for an hour waiting for some "guy" to be located who went missing who was responsible for our weight to certified for flight. I didn't like anything."
Cons: "Everything."

Pros: "flight was on time!"

Cons: "Flight attendants were NOT personal at all. Did not say hello or even greet passengers. Totally acted like they did not want to be there. Made me feel like we were nothing but a bother to even.be there. Hate all the interruptions advertising the credit card. Very annoying!"

Pros: "Seat uncomfortable. AA put me on a middle seat in my last 4 trips. I will never fly with AA."
Cons: "Better seat options."

Pros: "Staff was helpful throughout the flight. I like being kept updated on arrival time etc."

Pros: "Another customer allowed me to sit in the aisle seat rather than the assigned middle seat. That was much appreciated. And I enjoyed an movie during the flight. I like being able to choose what I want to watch and stream it on my own device."
Cons: "It was really cold on the airplane. I kept my jacket on for the entire flight. I’m typically warm natured, so it was unusually cold."

Pros: "Fast friendly service. From the security line to the friendly employees at AA. It was simple and fast."

Pros: "Got here early"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Poor flight. Staff kept the plane ridiculously warm the entire flight."

Pros: "Made it safely."
Cons: "Getting my phone blown up all day about delays on my two flights. Then sitting on the tarmac in the plane while the ground crew moved equipment around. Were they surprised a plane was coming in?"

Pros: "Delayed on the runway but overall good and smooth"
Cons: "Flight service was ok"

Pros: "Booked through Kayak. Confusing because paperwork says Alaska Air but I was flying American. I understand subsidiaries but you need to be informed as the airlines are at different terminals. The flight was great. That ticketing glitch was bad."

Cons: "I need to be able to charge my phone on the airplane!"

Cons: "You better hope you don't have a short connection. Sacramento fails to allow you direct access between the A and B terminals. You have to leave and hunt for the other building through the parking garage with no guidance and then go back through security. Unacceptable!"

Pros: "Everything else was great - including rest of crew"
Cons: "plane departure was delayed after boarding because the pilot hadn't arrived from local residence or hotel to SFO in time - as a result we sat on tarmac for half hour or more before departure AND because we arrived late we sat on tarmac for awhile waiting for an arrival gate to open at DCA"

Pros: "The aircraft was newer and the flight smooth. The pilot kept us updated on potential turbulence, which was comforting No one knew if Charlotte was going to get a gust from IRMA. The flight attendants were also friendly which isn't the case on some airlines."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "First Class Flight Attendant spent more time on her phone in the jump seat than asking if we needed anything. Came by twice for a 3 hour flight. I had to go up front to ask for a beverage, and she seemed totally put out"

Cons: "No entertainment in Business/First and no USB plugs or outlets. Only difference between Business and coach is the size of the seats. The rest was the same. I expected more service, food of some sort and entertainment or connectivity. I will probably avoid flying American if I can help it unless I see that they have updated things."

Pros: "Everything was great. I didn't have any food or drink. I slept the whole way to Dallas"

Pros: "It has been a good experience! Kayak kept updating me about gates and terminals for my connecting flights..."

Pros: "Everything went smoothly"

Pros: "Quick and smooth flight."

Pros: "Roomy first class and very nice staff!"

Cons: "significant delay in boarding; return to terminal to remove a drunk. Result was missed connection at DFW to London, resulting in missed connection to Munich; resulting in loss of my checked luggage"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The fact we were staring at the plane for 3 hours waiting to take off and customer service and the gate staff was no help"

Pros: "Great crew!"

Cons: "Check in through website was confusing to do. Flight shows on alaska airlines sight as a united flight. I downloaded the united app, and it tells me my flight is not just through american airlines, but through another carrier, american freedom or aomething like that. Very confusing. I called someone, I think american airlines, by this time completely confused. If there are multiple carrier types, I should be able to input my flight number and my info ahould come up for me to view flight info and check in, or seat assignment. In the end I dowloaded 2 or 3 apps, a confusing phone call, and when i got to rhw intial check in I was not treated well by tsa personnel. Maybe my name triggered thw extra search or something.Anyway, that last part is unrelated but my return flight was kind of a struggle."

Pros: "Flight attendants were awesome, aircraft was clean and seats were great."

Pros: "The free movies and plug in phone charger ..."
Cons: "No problems or worries from me"

Pros: "The crew, the fabulous plane with USB ports and free movies"
Cons: "It would have been nice to have ear phones for the movies."

Cons: "2 days late"

Cons: "Didn't even get on the flight due to delay out of KSMF and I talked to the ticket lady and this has been happening very regularly due to runway construction in Phoenix. Yet the airline won't let you know or change the schedules they just take your money knowing they will likely not be able to deliver the desired product."

Pros: "The flight to my destination was awesome. Helpful staff, great equipment, and plenty of room. I loved the technology in the seats."
Cons: "The return flight was not so good. I felt like an inconvenience and was not treated very well. At one point I was dismissed by an airline associate with a swish of her hand. Not exactly how anyone should be treated. There was a nice man that was a flight attendant, but other than that it was as if they were irritated people were even on the flight."

Cons: "They were out of snacks. A little thing but got under my skin as unprofessional."

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight is really late causing missed connection"

Cons: "I paid $25 fo my luggage. I don't like it next time I will choose another company."

Pros: "Non-stop and comfort"
Cons: "No snacks at all :("

Pros: "The tv in the seat back"
Cons: "The lack of knowledge and carding of the desk staff i was so looking forward to this vacation and it ended in nightmare 2 missed connections, 3+ hours added driving for my ride home and getting home at 3:30am or later whwn I would have been home at 11:00 luggage sent on with out me on the flight all in all very disappointing"

Cons: "4 hr. Layover"

Cons: "A few crew members was rude"

Cons: "Flight delayed for 4 hours"

Pros: "Complimentary upgrade to first class"

Pros: "While waiting to board an American pilot sat next to me and was very pleasant. I appreciated his conversation."
Cons: "Delayed getting out of Sacramento. The connection anxiety was intense. we landed as my connection was boarding. De-planing was chaotic and un informed. Seemed like we stood a good 10 mins before the doors opened...some info would have helped. Sometimes they give the gate numbers and everybody on that plane needed to go somewhere. the attendants were not helpful, the one announcer had an accent, a little hard to understand and asked that we all be kind...ok that I can do."

Cons: "Rude flight attendance werent prompt"

Pros: "Very good and safe"
Cons: "Everything was great"

Pros: "Easy bording"
Cons: "Everything was good"

Cons: "The rubber chicken in first class was awful. Drinks and wine were good. Service was excellent."

Pros: "Good job"

Cons: "Sat on the runway way too long. Hot. Cramped plane"

Pros: "On-time departure. Grouped boarding"
Cons: "Had to gate check bag, but I’ve flown this flight often enough to know that. Missed beverage service while dozing . Cart was just 2 rows past and never got a chance."

Pros: "We had a 1pm connecting flight to SF enroute to Los Angeles and it was suddenly cancelled without any notification. Luckily, Kayak had notified me about the cancellation and we immediately called United to take the next flight out. The earliest was at 5:50pm and we didn’t get back to LA till 7:50pm. The 5:50pm flight was late and therefore push everything out..."
Cons: "No communication from United... the crew and staff was fine, it was just the lack of communication that was disappointing! Not to mention, I had my dog boarded at Doggy Daycare and I’d missed picking her up due to the late return back to LA."

Cons: "Seating is very tight and amenities are nada."

Cons: "i had no space & couldn’t move because passenger next to me should have been required to purchase TWO SEATS!!! I could not move entire flight & he had armrest up & took up my space & full plant so i could not move elsewhere. my neck is still killing me because i had to turn my head to stay away from his face. i will NEVER fly united again."

Pros: "Easy very organized loading."
Cons: "Really nothing"

Cons: "Very turbulent flight"

Pros: "Our flight was delayed leaving RNO, and the check-in agent moved my seat up to the front even though I had the new "Basic Economy" so I'd have a better chance running to catch my connection upon arrival. She also put my backpack in one of those plastic bags. DCA did not do the same for me."
Cons: "Small CRJ, so seats were smaller as expected. Short flight though."

Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "In a decade of travel I've had three lost bags. Two of which were Air Canada. So I'm going to avoid them."

Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "I am a small person, 5ft 4in 110lbs. The seats are not comfortable and very cramped."

Cons: "Flight turned out to be 3 hours total instead of 1 1/4 hrs because of delays at both ends"

Cons: "Sat on the tarmac in Reno for half an hour because of flight control delay from SFO."

Pros: "At least we didn't crash and die"
Cons: "I've flown with United before, and I've only had nothing but trouble. Decided to give them one last try, since their flights were a few bucks cheaper. Big mistake. They canceled my return flight last minute, and scheduled a new one over 24 hours later. Thus causing me to have to book a hotel last minute, as well as now being AWOL, since my Leave paperwork only lasted until my return date. Had to explain to the chief why I won't be at formation. I'm saving myself the trouble and never flying united again, even if I have to spend more money. United isn't even reimbursing me for the hotel. They basically told me to go f**k myself and file a complaint. They can eat a d**k."

Cons: "Every flight delayed 2 hours plus"

Pros: "The service from the staff to fix the issue created by bad information and they were super nice about the situation. My flight out to visit my son and his family was great ."
Cons: "In united club I was told to report to flight gate at 1715. I missed my flight because of bad information. This issue was corrected by some super nice employees st the gate counter. I've always gone to the club when have longer layover times I pay the day fee but this caused my time back home to be closer to midnight not the before 2200. To then top off the night I get home and my luggage was damaged. Just a really long and troubling trip back home."

Cons: "I would like to rate my flight HOME. United CANCELED my flight one hour prior to boarding. PISSED"

Cons: "Took too long to get baggage"

Pros: "Friendly"
Cons: "Price"

Cons: "Tight uncomfortable seating"

Pros: "Flight out of Reno was delayed due to congestion / back up at LAX. Ground staff patiently helped all passengers reschedule connecting flights / explain options."

Pros: "It was quick but full"

Cons: "The tv broke"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Airplane went to the wrong airport and caused 3 hour delay . Missed my connecting flight."

Pros: "One flight, we sat next to ssomeone with a cat in her lap that threw up and pooped the whole time. The second flight a drunk man yelled the whole flight."

Pros: "Plane was clean"
Cons: "Gosh---no feedback on delay of takeoff . Didn't seem like they tried to avoid the turbulence which lasted the entire 4 hour flight . And to top it off the landing tossed us around in our seats because it was so rough. No apology and no sign of pilots when we disembarked very odd"

Cons: "No food. Horrible service"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "My flight was delayed three hours. The staff behind the gate were extremely rude and unhelpful when I or others would ask details about the flight. They failed to provide us with anything other than "All we know is what you know," which is extremely false as they knew the whole time that the flight coming in was delayed, which delayed our flights. The crew onboard was extremely rude as well, telling me I could not have two cups of Coke when I asked for a second (I was thirsty, and we were waiting for 3 hours to board the flight). Also, the flight attendant kept knocking on the bathroom door while I was in there, and once I got out, told me I was limited to 5 minutes during flight (which I have never been told, and have been flying for years). Needless to say, I probably will never be flying United Airlines again."

Pros: "The courteous ticket agent at the counter in Reno-that's all."
Cons: "Getting stuck, having to change plans. SUCKS!"

Cons: "Very uncomfortable ride. Now I know what dinners feel like. Recently flew Delta and didn't notice discomfort like this."

Pros: "I was on time. I liked the view."
Cons: "I don't like when they leave me at the gate in my wheelchair. I don't like it even more when they take the wheelchair. I feel really uneasy when I am left at the gate. So I have the wheelchair pusher let someone know from the gate that I am there and will need assistance. Once again being sexually assaulted going through the metal detectors. Outside of being foreign most of the United employees seem like complete morons. Also there was that same bag in front of me. So my legroom was restricted."

Pros: "It got me to Boston!"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats!"

Pros: "It got me to boston, the pilot etc did a great job"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, even in Economy plus"

Cons: "Our flights were all cancelled or delayed and they gave us nothing to apologize. We lost 2 whole days of vacation and the cost of our rooms. All of the customer service people were rude. One lady in particular was so rude I had to walk away from the desk. The movie on the plane skipped and was unwatchable. I hate this airline and would pay more to fly another one."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for almost 5 hours and then cancelled. This delayed my trip with family to Missouri and inconvenienced many people. On top of that, due to cancellation had to stay in hotel without my luggage and my pills that I have to take daily. Worst experience ever!! I need compensation for all this mess!!!!"

Pros: "It was a quiet and smooth ride."

Pros: "Did everything you scheduled and nice crew."
Cons: "On the 3 hour and 18 minute trip to NY in the coach section the seats have hard plastic armrests and a paded armrest would make your airline the cats meow. Give the coach section a little comfort please."

Pros: "I can't really rate the food or entertainment. The flight was a red-eye so I slept. However, I slept well in First Class after upgrading several hours prior to take off."
Cons: "The flight was 1 hour 30 minutes late taking off."

Cons: "The flight was over one hour late in leaving and while I appreciate that is beyond the control of the flight crew, one steward was quite rude as we were quickly trying to board as she prioritized serving the first class cabin rather than get us all on the plane. At the very least she could have used commonly acceptable language such as "please, thank you and excuse me" but rather chose to use "wait". As some of us where desperate to make a tight connection in SF, focusing on getting people on board and the plane off the ground should have been the crew focus."

Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "Delayed"

Cons: "I had no indication that my flight was actually with united and not air canada. I almost missed my flight as a result. Was incredibly stressful."

Pros: "Everything worked. Smooth process. But online check in didn't work well for us."
Cons: "Online check-in."

Pros: "Peaceful"
Cons: "The crew workers attitude"

Cons: "Late take off and had to wait for ground crew when landed"

Cons: "Entertainment was announced, yet nothing came up when I connected with the United app."

Pros: "Got delayed on my first flight, missed my other connections, had an 8 hr layover and almost 24 hr trip, rearranged my entire travel plan. Not united 's fault but not the best flight I've had either."

Pros: "Cheap"
Cons: "Lost my luggage and ruined my trip."

Pros: "I was comfortable. I entered and exited the plane very fast."

Pros: "The cheap price"
Cons: "No complementary drinks such as soda or snacks such as peanuts or pretzels"

Pros: "I had a medical emergency onboard and the captain took steps to make sure that medical attention was there when we landed. He also said hello. I really appreciated that!"

Pros: "Nothing!!!"
Cons: "Long layover. Lies about why there was a layover. Disrespectful people at the counter. If I could give neg stars I would. Lol"

Cons: "Boarded late again with no communication from any frontier reps"

Cons: "They charge me $45 for a carry on never in my life i would imagine"

Cons: "On runway for 20+ minutes"

Cons: "Delays for hours (5) and missed connections. On top of that, they couldn't get me to me San Diego destination. The best they could do was L.A....three hours away ! The offered no voucher and I would have to pay for my own hotel for the extra night stuck in Denver."

Cons: "Seat rows seemed a little close"

Pros: "Super cheap."
Cons: "It was hot and very cramped and the chairs didn't recline."

Pros: "A good first experience"

Pros: "Nothing- staff was rude, we sat in glorified folding chairs, had to pay 45 dollars for a carry on. What an absolute joke of an airline I sincerely hope frontier goes out of business entirely."

Pros: "It sucked."

Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "Delays"

Pros: "These were not good flights."

Cons: "I hate all the cost. 30 bucks for a carry one, 40 bucks to reserve seating, etc."

Cons: "Waiting on the tarmac for a gate"

Cons: "took 5 flights on a XC trip in two weeks. 4 of the 5 flights were late/delayed."

Cons: "Lack of entertainment options"

Cons: "too much turbulence."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Long lines to check in. Only three people working the counter. No communication with passengers waiting to check-in. Very poor communication with people waiting in line. Did not like the fact that I had to pay to select a seat."

Cons: "Had no idea I was had to pay 40.00 extra for a carry on."

Cons: "LATE LATE LATE. Always late!!"

Pros: "Getting off the plane."
Cons: "Frontier is all around archaic in a modern world."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Awful customer service across the board. I have flown Spirit regularly, so I am familiar with the concept of the low price airline, but this is far worse than anything I have ever experienced with Spirit."

Cons: "I'm not happy that I wasn't notified in advance that there would be an added $40 per bag. When flying with other airlines usually one bag and carry on is included in the price. I am not happy that upon arival I was notified my one bag would be an extra $40. That should have been discussed before."
